Curtis & Cake works with the highest quality ingredients possible (including organic eggs and butter and non-GMO flour) and always with an eye towards the seasons and Wisconsin’s local bounty. Our cakes are not too sweet but instead let flavor shine.
Dark chocolate stout
Made with extra-dark cocoa powder and Wisconsin dark beer, this is a deep, chocolatey favorite!
Edna Lewis’s Best Chocolate
Incredibly moist, old-fashioned chocolate goodness.
I created this recipe specifically for a cake with a moist, fudgy crumb and deep chocolate flavor.
Tender cake brightened with lemon oil and fresh zest.
Can’t decide between vanilla and chocolate? Try this Southern classic.
Made with organic coconut milk and cream.
Surprisingly flavorful with a tender crumb.
This cake is rich with egg and butter. Sometimes the best flavors are simple but decadent!
A Southern icon. Banana, pineapple, spice. Pecans optional.
No bright green weirdness here. Just subtle, buttery nuttiness from freshly ground pistachios.
Tender, with a blend of almond, cake, and all purpose flours.
Rum Butter Bundt
My scratch version of my mom’s famous cake.
Cleora Butler’s $100 cake
A light mocha.
Where inspiration takes me
Organic Butter Buttercream
Curtis & Cake buttercream is made with eggs, butter, and cane sugar for a silky mouth feel and rich flavor. Whole egg French buttercream is standard for signature celebration cakes. I often use Italian Meringue buttercream for wedding cakes. Using egg whites only, this frosting is lighter in texture and color.
Cream or goat cheese
orange blossom scented
